Holder Urges Lawmakers to Support Efforts to Stop Gun Trafficking
By CHARLIE SAVAGE
Published: November 8, 2011

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Tuesday sought to move past the political furor over Operation Fast and Furious, the disputed Arizona gun trafficking investigation, to the wider problem of the flow of American firearms to Mexican drug cartels — and what he portrayed as roadblocks members of Congress have thrown up to stemming that flow.

Holder Plays Dumb, Dems Push Gun Control
America should be disgusted with Holder's answers and the blame-shifting by his Democratic questioners.

Testifying before an intensely partisan Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder only deepened suspicions about the Department of Justice’s possible criminal involvement in a gunwalking operation known as Operation Fast and Furious. The scheme saw the federal government provide more than 2,000 firearms to Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel.

Holder presented the improbable case that he was not responsible for — or even aware of — the plot:

I have ultimate responsibility for that which happens in the Department, but I cannot be expected to know the details for every operation that is ongoing in the Justice Department on a day-to-day basis. I did not know about Fast and Furious as is indicated in the chart that you have up there until I guess, well, until it became public.

You really have to read the comments on this one . . . .
Just amazing that politicians really think the American Public is this dumb.
Lordy . . . Lordy . . . .I certainly hope not . . . .

And they think American Citizens are the dumb ones???  This writes an entire new definition to "stupid"!
Everyday I write the truth to who I am by what I do.
Life achieves its summit, when it does the uttermost what it was equipped to do.
It's always easier to shift the responsibility of one's existence, to lean on others rather than stand alone, but I refuse to place my destiny in another's hands.
